A security guard at a Mid-Wilshire area medical marijuana clinic was shot dead during an apparent robbery attempt Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Officer Jason Lee with the Los Angeles Police Department said several men, all about 25 to 30 years old, confronted the male security guard, at the La Brea Collective, 812 S. La Brea Ave., shortly after 3:30 p.m. and shot him several times. The guard, whose identity has been withheld pending notification of his family, died a short time later at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Lee said.



Officers combed the area and made several arrests, Lee said. Officers kept several blocks cordoned off until about 9 p.m, when they concluded their search.

. Lee could not say how many people had been detained.

"We're not calling them suspects, just people of interest," Det. Frank Carrillo of the LAPD's Wilshire Homicide unit told reporters at the scene. He said the victim had "numerous gunshot wounds."


Jess McKay, 25, said he was driving south on La Brea, heading to Torrance, when he "heard a pop, a really loud noise, and then another one."

McKay said he saw three men at the door of the clinic and heard six shots. He drove away when the men looked in his direction but then returned to the scene about 8 p.m. to tell police what he had witnessed.

At least two bullet holes could be seen in the window of a discount furniture store next door, and the window at the La Brea Collective was cracked.

Wait a second, I thought all the "Yes on Question 2" burnouts said marijuana doesn't cause violent crime? :rolleyes:
Ah yes, the good ol' argument that legalization will lead to a "safer" society. Pure rubbish!! To those who say legalization will reduce crime, how do you explain the vast amount of legal things that are stolen every day?
